Stress induced sickness

Are Koreans more likely to pass out from extreme stress and need to be taken to the hospital like we see in a lot of kdramas? It seems that kdramas portray stress to lead to being sick with a fever or passing out. It isn’t a common story line in most American shows. We might see more of the character getting hurt and needing help, but so many times in kdramas when the character is under intense stress they get sick.
I do understand that stress isn’t good for your health, in fact, I’ve had the Doctor tell me I need to eliminate some stress in my life. But it usually manifests in ways like, headache and insomnia, anxiety or depression. 

I was just curious since it’s a story arc in so many dramas.
